Wheel Balance

When your wheel balancing is out this can cause vibration to the steering wheel and dashboard which is not only uncomfortable but can cost you MONEY!!! If you have noticed your steering wheel starting to wobble when you are driving above a certain speed this could be a result of incorrect balancing. Incorrect balancing may result in premature wear of tyres and rapid wear of suspension parts. Do you have a newer vehicle?

Some newer lighter weight modern cars don't dampen down the vibrations caused by spinning wheels in the way that older, heavier vehicles can and therefore this can have a greater impact and safety concern for you.
A driver may not always sense an imbalance at the steering wheel. It could be present with but dampened by the vehicle weight. This is why balancing is equally important for both front and rear wheels.
How do we wheel balance tyres?

Wheels are balanced on a wheel balancing machine. The machine rotates the tyre and wheel assembly and automatically calculates the weight and location of the balance counter weight. 

Correctly balanced wheels help to eliminate vibration and avoid premature wear caused by an imbalance in the rotating wheel and tyre assembly.

As a result of wheel balancing, you should notice a smoother ride and better wear from your tyres, again saving you time and money.

When you purchase new tyres from Top Tread we will always balance your wheels. This is because new tyres will often have inconsistencies in the rubber compound - wheel balancing will take account of this and encourage even wear on your new tyres.

Top Tread recommend you should have your wheels checked or balanced after an impact such as a kerb, pothole or stone. We have the latest balancing equipment which allows wheels to be balanced with great accuracy, to the nearest gram.
